The Weekend.

I watched rugby till 5am.
Needless to say, I was absent from worship this morning.
Thermal season.

Carpet in the lounge at The Livians.

Ngawi's birthday is tomorrow. We celebrated it today because it's his Dads weekend off and he was home - and not hunting - and because tomorrow is a busy day (boys have boxing, Shai has BBall etc).

Too much sugary stuff.

Only 2 of Nganz friends were invited. The Giggler and Cyrus.

He probably wouldn't have invited Hubba if he called the shots.

He didn't want a fancy cake this year.
"A chocolate one" he said.
Thanks to Gooey cakes, it was so.

The birthday boy.
He'll be 6 tomorrow.

R for Rome.

The birthday present.
I really like it. The detail made me want to play with it.

Tried to avoid FHE tomorrow by writing todays birthday lunch off as family home evening.
Got bummed out so it's my turn tomorrow.
How unfortunate.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
